Rating: | Price: $$$$ | WebsiteFlint River Ranch is a food that could be on the cusp of being great, but has a few obstacles to overcome first. It’s primarily, as far as I can tell, sold online and it tends to be VERY expensive. So it’s very hard for any pet food to live up to what it should be when it is that expensive.
It starts out well enough, with trout being first and herring meal 4th. Despite this, the protein percentage is somewhat low for the food, so they could stand to include more protein sources in this food and cut out some of the millet. Millet isn’t one of the best grains to use anyway, and could stand to be made more scarce. The inclusions of potatoes are great for carbs and taste.
Cranberries and blueberries provide a couple of fruits. Grapeseed oil is a great fat source, and the fish meal will help provide Omega fatty acids.
This food is pretty average in the scheme of things. Better than most of what you’ll find in your local grocery store or Petsmart, though. For the price though?? Egads no!
Where to buy?
We recommend Only Natural Pet Store as an ethical retailer selling high quality pet foods:
